Broccoli Salad ~ By Valerie

 This summer, we were introduced to this broccoli salad by some new friends that invited us over to their home!  We all enjoyed it very much!  But I especially LOVE this salad!  I even requested it for my birthday meal!  It has so much flavor and texture to it! And it is all fairly healthy things that go in to it!   So I knew I needed to record the recipe here, and share it with you all!  Enjoy! 


Broccoli Salad
    5 C. fresh broccoli florets
    1/2 C. raisins or craisins
    1/2 C. sunflower seeds
    1/2 C. cooked bacon
    1/2 C. onion (any variety, but we haven't added these to ours yet)
    1/2 - 1 C. grated cheese
    1 C. frozen peas, thawed (our family isn't a big fan of peas, so we haven't added these) 
    1 C. Mayo
    2 TBS. vinegar (any kind)
    1/2 C. Sugar 

Mix salad ingredients in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl whisk dressing ingredients together.  Add dressing to salad and mix well.  Chill before serving.
